Blood donor day again, and a chance to visit a pub which has changed name and gained real ale since the last time I was there, so I headed for the Denbigh Castle:
Only one other customer in here at half one on a Monday. I zapped the NHS code and chose a table where I was quickly provided with an excellent pint of Dissolution IPA from Kirkstall. What a great tasty ale, quite sweet but still hoppy.
They've got five handpumps, three had clips, Banks's Amber and one I couldn't read from my seat being the other options.
I was trying to remember what this place was like last time I visited, in 2012, when it was called Jupiter's, but I couldn't visualise the room then. I suspect it's been totally remodelled since. Anyway, now it has pleasant slightly dark decor with a pale wood floor.
I hope they get enough customers at more popular times to keep the quality ales flowing.
There's no sign to indicate the way to the gents, I eventually worked out it's downstairs where there is also another room with a counter and two handpumps, obviously not in use at this time.
